Cygwin/X itself does not create a homedirectory. It is just the graphics
system. The cygwin distribution takes care of creating the homedirectory.

You have started Cygwin/X twice. Maybe you did not notice it has already 
been started. When Cygwin/X is runnng, a X will appear in the trayarea
of the taskbar and you can start any X11 program you want.
